Murder is still murder, and if it offends your religious sensibilities to call it wrong, tough
What the hell, over? Second-degreee murder?
Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community — reported her death to police Thursday.
Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.
She had filed for divorce. He beheaded her. In Buffalo, New York. The USA. Not Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Philippines, or even Darfur. Right here on American soil. She had gone to court and gotten a protective order against him. They don't hand those out because you make goo-goo eyes at the judge and claim you're scared.
Look, I don't give a thin damn how you feel about sharia or what your idea of proper courtesy to superstition and custom might be. This is still a murder.
Why was he not charged with first-degree murder?
The worst that I've seen, yeah," said Andrew Benz, Orchard Park Police Chief.
Police tell News 4 the only suspect in this case is the victim's husband, who walked into police headquarters in Orchard Park Thursday evening to report his wife was dead.
It's being called a brutal murder.
"She was decapitated,yes," said Benz.
Zubair was found in the hallway. The mission of Bridges TV is to foster understanding between cultures and diverse populations. According to police, the couple had trouble getting along.
Benz said, "There has been some history. I believe Mrs. Hassan, the victim, had recently filed for divorce and had served the papers on Mr. Hassan."
Police say Zubair and her husband were parents to four children. The marital issues came to light recently with police going to the couple's Big Tree Road in Orchard Park last Friday. ApparentlyZubair felt she was in danger.
"We had been down to their house on Friday, the 6th to serve an order of protection," said Benz.
Domestic violence my eye. Murder. I don't give a damn if he did found a pro-Muslim TV station. Came right down to it, he murdered the mother of his children. No excuse suffices.
Oh, and Mandos? yours are no exception. "Honor killing" is ILLEGAL in the USA. We're not a community open to cultural respect to the extent we let MURDER go -- or are we?
